About

Blair House Inn guests can cool down with a dip in our 45 foot lap pool or relax in the whirlpool spa to escape the summer heat. In keeping with the local ambience and charm, the pool was custom designed by Canyon Pools & Spas, well-known for their use of Texas limestone, and was built to blend into the landscape with hill country views in mind. It sits at the top of the Inn’s property and offers the perfect vantage point for the breathtaking sunsets over Paradise Valley. Blair House Inn, a Texas Bed and Breakfast, has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence the last four years in a row and ranked third nationwide for "Best Evening Cuisine" by Arrington's B and B Journal. Blair House rests on 23 scenic acres in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, and offers 12 rooms, including 4 private cottages, all of which are designed to provide guests the ultimate inn experience. Spacious, sun-filled rooms, gracious hospitality, and the best in Hill Country dining await you. Indulge in a three-course breakfast with fresh fruit, homemade pastries, and rich Columbian coffee or a variety of hot teas every morning and a mouthwatering dessert and beverage brought to your room every evening. All rooms have a private bath (most with Jacuzzis), wonderful Hill Country views, TV, DVD and CD players, fresh flowers, chocolates, and opulent linens. Relax in the Sauna or with massage services after a day spent perusing the shops and galleries located just 1.6 miles away on Wimberley Square, golfing at one of three local courses, or swimming in our custom pool. Enjoy fine dining Saturday evenings with our 5-course fixed menu dinners prepared by our classically trained chef, or work directly with him in our nationally recognized Cooking School. Blair House Inn is the perfect location for a Romantic Weekend Getaway!

First time

5 on August 11, 2015

Not really into this stuff but did it for my girlfriends bday. Had an absolute blast at this place. The staff was extremely friendly. The rooms were great. The dinner and breakfast i wish i could have all the time. Interesting places and wineries around were great. Highly recommend this place and i will return in near future.


Perfect retreat for couples!

The room was beautifully appointed, and we so enjoyed the evening wine and dessert set in our room each late afternoon. We loved the outer sitting room and front porch - it was a real home away from home for us, and Chris and Lois are awesome innkeepers who do everything they can to accomodate you. Can't wait for our next visit!


WE WILL BE BACK

Lovely rooms, delicious breakfast, a big treat in the evening with dessert and wine. But, the best is the beautiful Texas Hill Country and the serenity of the place. Met lovely people and we will be back!


Anniversary Getaway

Chris and Lois made our three day stay quite enjoyable. We stayed in the Laredo suite. Very comfortable bed, spa type bathroom and awesome views. Breakfast was like a box of chocolates. . Never knew what you were going to get but always a treat. Highly recommend Blair House Inn.


Texas cooking classes

4.8 on May 25, 2015

Signed up for the Texas BBQ class and it was outstanding. Brian showed us smoking techniques for meats, salmon and chicken and the brisket melted in our mouth. We also learned more efficient ways to handle ourselves in the kitchen whether smoking, baking or preparing. The lemon curd pie and beignets were examples of our efforts and were world class. The Inn is a delightful place made more of avalue with the cooking classes. Chris and Lois were accomodating and we hope to return. The scenery, the property, the rooms and the service make this a number one selection.


Great Hill Country Ger Away

5 on May 19, 2015

Very nice Inn. Attention to detail is very high, rooms were outstanding. Peaceful surroundings, yet close enough to Wimberley to go in for dinner and live music and get home in minutes. PERFECT get away!!


Best B&B ever!

5 on May 01, 2015

Room was spotless, quiet, and very comfortable. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast and evening desserts were superb.


Total Relaxation

5 on April 14, 2015

My husband and I visited the TX Hill Country for the first time a week ago. We came for the wildflowers and weren't disappointed, but we were pleasantly surprised at how much we loved the Blair House Inn and property. My husband has COPD, so when we found out the Inn sits on the side of a hill, the owners were very accommodating with parking in order to avoid walking uphill to our room inside the main house. Breakfasts are ample and delicious and they accommodated my husband's allergy to onions and distaste of raisins. The property includes over 80 acres of rolling earth that includes a loop trail, hammocks, sunset watching chairs, and plenty of wildlife to watch....birds and deer. We loved the place and highly recommend it!


My first B&B! I'm now a believer!

Ask me if I would return to the Blair House! A b s o l u t e l y!! We only got one night to enjoy the beauty of the grounds and our room. Unfortunately we chose a rainy weekend to come visit and didn't get a chance to really check out the pool and explore. Everyone was exceptionally approachable and friendly! The room was adorable, and the fireplace was so helpful in warming us up after getting drenched from the rain. Can't wait to go back!
